Reference man

Reference man is defined by the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) as being a white jung adult, weighing 70 kg, is 170 cm in height, and lives in a moderate climate.

One should realize that reference man is created from statistical data of healthy young men and that values from a real person may differ greatly from the reference values. Therefore, one must take caution in applying the values from the calculation models of the ICRP.
